YSI VIRTUAL PLENARY 2020 New Economic Questions

The world is in crisis and we need to respond with new economic thinking. We can’t meet in person this year, but we also can’t afford to wait. So we’re taking the YSI Plenary online. We hope you will join us for the YSI Virtual Plenary on 6-15 November, 2020.

It won’t be anything like a regular conference, or a series of Zoom calls. We’re going to reimagine what a plenary can be, and we will push the envelope on online academic collaboration.

So, forget the confines of classroom walls, and picture a virtual sea of possibilities! Each working group will prepare their virtual ship to escape the doldrums of old economics and sail off into the horizon. A virtual lighthouse will help you find the way. Constellations of questions will guide our path. And, of course, there will be a party island to hang out with friends!
